        The Italian Job. The real one with Michael Caine.
        Special Feature: The 2007 Targa Newfoundland

        Our upstairs TV is on it's last legs and it would be helpful if anyone has a TV they could bring so we can have two movie rooms.

          Directions:

          From Southbound I-5:
          Take Exit 157, Highway 900/Martin Luther King Jr. Way S. Stay left and follow MLK Way.
          Go through two stop lights. The second is 68th. Be in the left lane.
          Left next opportunity, S 135th. Only about 2/10ths of a mile from the 68th stop light.
          Follow 135th to the end (approx. 7/10ths of a mile) to "T" intersection.
          Left at "<-->" (80th).
          First driveway on the right.

          From Northbound I-5:

          Take Exit 154 I-405 N/Highway 518
          Keep right at the fork in the ramp.
          Take Exit 2, Highway 167, towards Renton/Auburn.
          Keep left at the fork in the ramp, then keep right at the next fork.
          Merge onto the Valley Freeway and go straight onto Rainier Ave. S.
          Turn left onto Sunset, then right onto Naches Ave. S.W (80th Ave. S). Short steep hill.
          Just after the top of the hill, driveway on the right.

          Note that the map on the home page is slightly deceiving. My house is more towards the 135th end of 80th.

            Could use either a DVD player or a VCR player for the night. Doro bought a new, small flat screen TV so that is solved, but the old VCR gave up the ghost. Anybody bring one?

              Those that can make their way through the unusual weather Tuesday night shouldn't lack for food. I'm counting on a big turnout. If not I'll be eating left over pizza and Subway for a while -- or Elias will.

                    The "featured" car in the garage for the night will be David Haight's nice estate, the TINIWAG. Come see what a Clubmanectomy looks like and say goodbye to the TW. It will heading back to SoCal in the near future. Sad no one here picked it up.

                      Do they usually plow the hills by your place? I've got about 3.5 inches of snow at my place. Still planning on coming, just making up my mind what car to drive.

                        I live in the same neck of the woods, and most of the ice is gone.

                          Main roads are clear and dry. Roads around my house are 95% free of ice. Langston, 135th and 80th were sanded early Sunday morning. No snow left. Driveway, including the steep part down to the garage, is clear.

                          The immediate area is fine as long as we don't get any more moisture -- which we're not supposed to.

                          James, should be no risk for the new acquisition around here, but don't risk it on your roads if you have doubts. If you do bring it, I'll make room in the garage behind TINIWAG. (You did check the antifreeze, right?!)

                            The surrounding hills are pretty clear, I don't think you will have a problem assuming the moisture doesn't change from today.
